.8%. that's the best since barack obama took office and it's certainly positive news for his re-election hopes because no president has been re-elected with an unemployment rate above 8% since roosevelt in the 1830s. erin herself has made this point many times. >> the unemployment rate may be high, but the the absolute number is not what matters when it comes to getting re-elected. that's about to trend. every president running since world war ii has won when the rate was falling and lost when it was going up. best example, get ready. >> it's morning again in america. today, more men and women will go to work than ever before in our country's history. with interest rates at about half the record highs of 1980. >> yeah, you know what ad was for. that was ronald reagan, who won the election with a rate of 7.4%. so, the question is, can mr. obama win one like the giper or is the number still bad enough to doom his hopes? well, cue mitt romney. that's what happened today. his team is furiously pointing out how many people are underemployed. last month's household survey found 582,000 of the
the elections for some of the candidates. i just think they will be more relevant in the future. as the tea party is not able to help out with the republicans, i think he will see a lot of people in the grass roots level leave the two parties and go to the third party. host: thank you for the call. jill stein just received a hundred $60,000 from the election commission because she is -- $160,000, she is out with a new web ad proclaiming with the green party is all about. [video clip] >> it is an end to unemployment, climate change and an end to corporate role. we are not talking spare change, we need a revolution. that is what we deserve it. what we do not deserve is pandering irresponsible [beep] passing itself off as campaigning. i cannot believe i said that, but that is how i feel. >> i am voting for jill stein. >> we need a green president. vote for jill stein. >> i am voting for jill stein. >> i am jill stein. i approve this message. host: dr. jill stein will be joining us later in the program. from the twitter page -- our question if you are just joining us are listening on c- span ra
demonstrated demanding political reform and new elections called by the king. he wears it well. 50 years since 007 hit the silver screen. we bring you nostalgias with the world's most famous -- nostalgia with the world's most famous spy. the turkish government insists it will respond forcefully to any of cells on -- assaults by syria on the turkish people. the country does not intend to start a war with syria but he has the backing of parliament to act with force if necessary. the turkish foreign minister spokesmen told the bbc it was in syria's hands to insure calm returned to the area. >> there were schelling's in the last 10 days. -- shelling in the last 10 days. the thelling was huge -- the shelling was huge and painful. we do not want to declare a war, but we have to prepare for any eventuality to protect our citizens. >> we are in the border area with our correspondents in just a few minutes. let's have a look at some of the other stories making headlines around the world. american tourists killed a person after opening fire in a hotel. the gunman was shot dead by security forces after h
. this administration has a lot to answer for. they want the foreign policy to be the election policy and now it's front and center. >> eric: is the administration lying? is there a coverup? >> no, i don't think they are lying at all. i think their response is less than commanding. the first information you get from a crisis overseas is imperfect, wrong or it will change or a few days. it is not a question, that there were late to rolls release on friday afternoon, an update that, yes, this was a planned attack. but the defining issue is here the security of the compound. we know that the british ambassador, the united nations office and the red cross office in benghazi had been attacked recently, prior to the attack and the murder of our wonderful ambassador there. but the equivalent what have it costs to keep one member in afghanistan half a year is the protection we gave the consulate. who is to blame? i think the administration needs to take on board we are not protecting our warriors and our state department. but congress, since 2010, has cut our security funding for our emr embassies by 10 pmpls e
." >>> we're now just 36 days from the presidential election and nationally our brand-new cnn/orc poll of likely voters shows the race between president obama and governor romney remaining up for grabs. the president leads 50% to 47%. but his three-point margin is within the poll's sampling error. our chief national correspondent john king is in denver getting ready for the debate over there. that's the site of the debate. john, take us into these numbers. what are you seeing? >> reporter: well, wolf, i can tell you this, talking to senior officials in the romney campaign, they believe after a tough week or ten days, the last several days, they have a little bit of a breeze at their back. they say the race has stabilized. you dig into the numbers. what is the most important issue in this first debate? the economy. look at this poll. which candidate would better handle the economy? the president, 49%, governor romney, 48%. a dead heat. the president has to defend his record. governor romney not only needs to attack his record but to convince voters he has a better place to take them if
month, hard to believe, till election day, and no issue bigger than jobs, right? >> no doubt about that, randi, and you're right. after what you could consider a tough week for the president coming out of that debate in denver the jobs numbers are a good sign for his re-election bid, a happy sign for the re-election team, but for mitt romney this is fascinating, landi, because the unemployment rate is below 8% for the first time since barack obama came into the white house back in january of 2009. you have heard mitt romney on the campaign trail over and over again, over the last year and a half running for the white house, criticize this president on jobs for the unemployment rate being over 8%. now it is under 8%. now it's time for mr. romney to have to pivot from his favorite line. take a listen to both candidates on the campaign trail yesterday reacting to the jobs numbers. >> today's news should give us some encouragement. it shouldn't be an excuse for the other side to try to talk down the economy just to try to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country's com
bias has reached unprecedented levels in this election cycles. and later, usa today reporter discusses why the nation's water costs have risen 32% since 2000. "washington journal" is next. host: as we look at the capitol, record high 38% of americans prefer that the same party control the presidency and congress, while a record low, 23%, say it would be better if the president and congress were from different parties. 33% say it doesn't make any difference to them. these findings are based on a gallup poll annual governance survey and are the basis for our discussion for the first 45 minutes of this edition of the "washington journal." good morning. today is saturday, september 29. we want to find out from you about divided government. are you in favor of it? would you prefer to see one party, two parties, three parties? one party versus divided government, your preferences is our topic for the first segment of the program. 202-585-3880 is our number for democrats. republicans can call us at 202-585-3881. independents, 202-585-3882. if you're calling outside the u.s., 202-585-3883. we'
waged a campaign to get jim lehrer of pbs who will be posted the first presidential election to ask the question about gun violence. another. you don't hear much debate between the republican candidate mitt romney and president obama -- we will open up the debate and expand the debate as we so often do on "democracy now, "to a third party candidates. we will be in denver, to and we will have third-party candidates responding to the same questions being put to mitt romney and president obama. we will broadcast democracy and on radio as well. you raised the issue of the critical vote as we traveled through pennsylvania. a whole issue of voter suppression and having been in charlotte, a great civil-rights city, where the students from the historical black college in 1960 set up a lunch counter in to grant them and yet, what do we see today? state after state, efforts to suppress voting rights instead of expanding them. not enough people vote in this country. in pennsylvania, there is legislation now on the books that could disenfranchise between 750,000-1 million people. presid
are demanding change? >> that is the very big question of this election. mitt romney has tried to run as a change agent, but what the obama campaign has done very well is attack him in critical swing states that both candidates wanted to win. he has done a good job of disqualifying mitt romney and he is working against that and romney needs to get back to all the voters who might think he is not as qualified to be president and prove to that he is. >> gregg: i'm struck by the number of pundits and journalists that sort of pro nourng nounsing this race as over -- pronouncing this race as over. they said undecided voters historically choose the challenger. you would expect the remaining undecided voters to break not exclusively but disproportionately for mitt romney rather than president obama. does that make the debates all the more relevant and vital? >> no question about it. i would pointed out to you in a lot of these swing states, president obama is getting up to about 50% getting close and in some states he is just about over. it doesn't matter necessarily if there is a 4-point di
of these places around europe, the pro-european party in the election has one and the opposition is more european. so i feel that it's going to be a muddle through. the real issue of course is growth and the real issue is how do we solve the long-term problems and those things are things are antagonistic to each other. austerity means deflation and not growth and that is the real challenge. how did they sponsor growth in the short term and promised the market austerity and more balanced budgets in the long term and that is a challenge ahead but i've spent enough time in the political will to get the stem but their challenges and there's a chance of going off the rail there. it is unlikely this point and less likely than it would have been four months ago. >> so you think your partner has done the right thing at the bottom purchase program? a lot of people would say it kicks the problem further down the road. >> well i would say the first thing you have to do in any kind of tree our situation is you have to stabilize the patient and maybe that is another, maybe that is a different metaphor for peo
that it's going to have to confront over the next several years, not just in the next election? >> it's going to be a long time coming. i think they really need to begin to tie those core issues, things like energy prices and how that connects to the cost of milk to women. i think they need to remember that women are soaring to the top of every educational and professional field out there, the beyond all idea that they we talked to about birth control, um, that they want to be talked to as if they are wards of the state is absurd. and if the republican party can manage to talk to women the way they talk about men, that they care about the real issues that matter to all of us, then i think that's a party for my daughters and for my son. jenna: that's right. ten months old, right? he's little, he still counts. >> yeah, i don't know. [laughter] jenna: sabrina, thank you very much. some important be insight, we appreciate have having you on as always. >> thanks so much. je little context just to show you how important this is. 69.6 million women voted in 2008, 56% came out in support of t
that separation? another question that's obvious to raise, especially with an election coming up, is in this any way to cover an election? it's a really good question, and i'm sure the session will spark good conversations, and i hope it will give us some good ideas as well. this looks like a fascinating program, and we're very, very proud to host it. thank you very much and welcome. [applause] >> thank you very much. and now i'd like to hand the floor over to jim corpsville of stony brook university who will lead our plenary panel asking, is this any way to cover an election? >> thank you, a.j., and good morning to everybody. we have a very distinguished and knowledgeable panel to talk about this topic, the timing, obviously, couldn't be better, debates wednesday night. let me introduce the people on the panel. to my immediate right is michael howe who's the technical cofounder of the fourth of state project as well as the architect of the platform that runs both enterprises. the project focuses on driving media coverage of the election 2012. and i think he'll have a very interesting powerpoint
years. yet, the court is nowhere in the election so far. jeff, you wrote about this yesterday. what is your take on why we are not hearing about the court on the campaign trail. >> because, i have asked political professionals this question repeatedly. democrats and republicans say the same thing. they say the people who really care about the supreme court are committed to their party anyway. the people who want roe preserved are going to vote for the democrats those who want it reverses are going to vote republican. the swing voters don't care even if they are pro-choice or against citizens united, they are not motivated to vote so the candidates don't talk about it. >> it's interesting. we just completed a poll and found different results. in fact, a wide majority of the people do care about the court, are interested in the court, i think because of citizens united. perhaps they paid more attention around the decision of obama care. not only is there greater interest in the court, but there's also growing concern about the corporate tilt of the supreme court and the fact this is a
central for this election. unemployment rose after barack obama became president, peaking at just over 10%. today's figure is the first time it has been under 8% for 44 months. >> this morning, we found out that the unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest level since i took office. [applause] >> the good news comes at the end of a bad week for the president where he was widely derided for a lackluster debate performance. now some feel he is back. >> we have made to much progress to return to the policies that led to the crisis in the first place. i cannot allow that to happen. i will not allow that to happen. that is why i am running for a second term as president of the united states. >> blaming unemployment on the president has been central to the case of republicans. >> under obama's economy, it is just not getting better. >> mitt romney told a rally that today's improvement did not mean much. >> the unemployment rate has come down very slowly but it has come down on the less. the reason is primarily due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work. i of
of a wider crackdown on critics of the russian president. fiercely contested parliamentary elections in georgia, there has already been in -- already been numerous incidents of violence. damian mcginnis is in tbilisi. >> this is the first time in a decade that the ruling party has been seriously challenged. since coming to power in 2004, his pro-western government has ruled without any serious opposition. he says the country will be thrown back to the crime and chaos of the 1990's if the ruling party is ousted. >> a lot of things are being decided right now in our country. for the future development of our country, for what happens to the european people in this part of the world and what happens to the idea of democracy in this part of the world. >> these are the most unpredictable elections they have known since their on attendance. on the one hand, you have the president's ruling party credited with saving the country from being a failed state. on the other hand, there is an opposition coalition led by a billionaire businessman who earned his money in russia and the 1990's. more t
face in this election. what the election comes down to, and you are going to hear over the next two months, i know you must be tired of hearing hands, but you're going to hear more over the next two -- or the next six weeks, and over and over again you're going to hear my opponents talk about how bigger tax cuts, fewer regulations, that's the way to go. and since government can't do everything it should do almost nothing. they're making -- if you can't afford health care, then hope you don't get sick. if you can't afford college, borrow money from your parents. you know what? that's not who we are. i don't think government can solve all our problems but government's not the source of all our problems, either. there's some things we've got to do together. we -- instead of going around blaming somebody, unions or immigrants or gays or somebody, for what's going on, what we need to do is pull together. we're all in this together. we believe that america only works when we all accept responsibility for ourselves, and for each other. that's how we- >> and mr. obama will be on the road th
. >> sean: we are 39 days from the election, and "hannity" starts right here, right now. we're awaiting the first pictures from a muslim rally on american soil in dearborn, michigan. they're protesting the trailer that continues to be blamed for all the violence that has recently swept the middle east and north africa. they claim that the filmmaker has blood on his hands. they want to stress the need to curb portrayals of islam and the prophet. let me explain what this means. they want to limit your right to freedom of speech. we'll have a full report and images in just a little bit on the program, and as soon as that video becomes available we will bring it into to you on the fox news channel. first new evidence tonight that senior members of the obama administration in fact engaged in a widespread cover-up in the hours immediately following the nation of four americans in libya. beyond just their misleading words, it's now their behind-the-scenes actions that are raising very serious questions tonight about what this president and his top aides are trying to hide. according to the was
, it's going to be a jump-ball election three or four weeks from now. it's going to be within two or three points. it's that close out in the country. i think tonight's debate, though, matters a great -- >> let me stop you there, mike. so you do think it's still going to be a jump ball because obviously mitt romney's had a horrific september. his own people say, man, what a horrible month. but we still have a long way to go here. you think it's still going to be a jump ball? >> yes, i do. i do. because of two elements that polls can't really get to, the level of anxiety in this country about daily life and about the immediate future of our economy, and the level of disappointment in barack obama held by obama supporters who will vote for him, but they are still disappointed in him. so those two things alone, i think, are going to result in a jump-ball election. but to the debate tonight, i do think it's going to be important for mitt romney. the reason i think it's going to be important for mitt romney is i think very few of us have an understanding of the ripple effect of the 47%
in the run-up to the election as there is to perform political party community talk about amnesties. there would need to be cease-fires. all of that is asserted and you would to discuss any genuine political process. that hasn't started. >> to the extent to which we, we the whole of the international community has been participating, provided a substitute economy and afghanistan to start up allow me to develop so far. is that the incentive? is there some economic incentive that brings them into this process? is it that that's going to solve the problem is it's not constitutional matters in human rights and everything clicks >> we need to start reducing the amount of money these then on afghanistan. >> howell to be sustainable within itself? >> the economic process is one where we have to keep helping the afghans fun the development for 10 years beyond what they get on with developing the mineral resources. at the same time, trying to execute a political process to reduce the pressure in the security forces and wouldn't have to be so proficient if there is a political process. you ha

'donnell. >> rose: do you think this election the president has said that change has to come from outside rather than in washington, that this election has the possibility of producing a change that will be able to overcome gridlock. >> i don't think it to the only has the possibility, i think it almost certainly will. and let me explain why. i think the president's going to win but let's assume governor romney won. if he wins, that almost certainly means the republicans will hold on to the house and it will be about 50/50 in the senate, more or less the way it is now. you can't filibuster a budget. it's the only thing that doesn't require 60 votes in the senate to pass o as opposed to 51. so a lot of the policymaking will be pushed into the budget and he'll just have to pick up one or two people on that. if you assume that he is going to do what he said he's going to do, i think a lot of his priorities will be enacted. and i think it will be bad on the budget side, as i said. including for medicare t will drive the medicare trust fund out-- dry up the money by 2016. if what i think is going to
